Patented Shock Absorption Design, Shatter-Proof Materials And Internal Shielding Make SpeedCheck Radar Speed Signs The Most Durable Radar Speed Sign

These unique and innovative design elements work together to maintain optimum display viewability over time, through the worst conditions

Information Display Company (IDC) today demonstrated the industry's most vandal resistant radar speed signs during the 2009 Oregon Transportation Safety Conference held this week in Hood River, Oregon. Addressing a group of traffic engineers and safety professionals attending the event, Gary ODell, president of IDC pointed out innovative design features used in the company's displays that make SpeedCheck brand radar speed signs the most durable, vandal resistant radar speed display signs available.

Only SpeedCheck radar speed signs are designed with a patented shock absorption mechanism attached to the display window and internal electronics. Each display is also built with a shatterproof window that resists damage. The LED display panel of each SpeedCheck radar speed sign is protected by an integral metal structure that serves to maintain proper LED alignment over time and to properly position and protect the display board in the event the window is struck by a projectile.

"These unique and innovative design elements work together to maintain optimum display viewability over time, through the worst conditions," said ODell. "SpeedCheck radar speed signs are the toughest, most durable radar speed displays available anywhere."

In a 2007survey of national traffic safety experts, radar speed signs were chosen as the fastest, longest-lasting way to slow speeding traffic on residential streets, around schoolyards and other areas where pedestrian safety is a priority. The survey, sent out to over one hundred traffic engineers, police officers and safety professionals from around the country also found that driver feedback signs are perceived to have a more immediate and longer lasting effect on slowing traffic compared to other traffic calming methods, including police with radar guns, speed bumps, rumble strips and static speed signs.

Vandal resistant designing is just one of many traffic calming innovation from Information Display Company, a company focused and dedicated to developing and manufacturing the most effective, high-quality traffic-calming technologies on the market. IDC's SpeedCheck radar speed signs are used in more U.S. cities than any other radar speed sign. For more information contact Information Display Company at (800) 421-8325, or visit their website at
